Digital Video Downloads

One of the hottest trends in the cyber world is the explosions of video downloads from the Internet, to your computer, your iPod-style entertainment device, or, more and more, to your cell phone. Microsoft has launched its version, MSN Video Downloads, which gives video junkies all kinds of daily television programming, including video content from MSNBC.com, Food Network, FOX Sports and IFILM Corp., for download to Windows Mobile -based devices.

Since the launch of the Microsoft Windows Mobile-based Portable Media Center, more than 20 new content partners, including CinemaNow Inc., MLB.com, MSNBC.com, MSN Music, MTV Networks Music, Napster Inc., SnapStream Media Inc. and TiVo Inc., have agreed to make video available online specifically formatted for Windows Mobile-based multimedia devices.

People subscribing to Microsoft's premium service can select the content they want to receive from the Web site. Digital videos are downloaded daily to a Windows Media Player 10 library, ready to be synchronized with Portable Media Centers and other devices. The video content is compatible with devices that play video, and is optimized for Portable Media Centers.

Google Video lets you search a growing archive of televised content – everything from sports events to dinosaur documentaries to news programs. In addition to furnished content, Google also lets you host video from anyone who wants to upload content. The upload program lets you submit videos electronically to Google Video, as long as you own the necessary rights (including copyright, trademarks, rights of publicity, and any other relevant rights for your content). Just use the upload tool to send your videos to Google. Before going live, your video has to go through a number of steps which you can track through your account.

After uploading your video, you must enter information about your video, including its title and description. After verification, your video will be made available for users to search, preview, purchase, and play. At any time after you upload your video to Google, you'll have the opportunity to add videos, update the information about each video, or remove your video from the program.
